Bamboo Harvester

Bamboo Harvester (1949-1970) was the name of the Palomino horse that
portrayed Mister Ed on the 1961–1966 CBS comedy series of the same
name.

In 1968, two years after the cancellation of Mister Ed, at the age of 19,
Bamboo began to suffer from a variety of age related ailments, including
kidney problems and arthritis. He was euthanized in 1970.

A second palomino horse, which had posed for still pictures used in press
kits
for the show, survived until 1979. After Bamboo Harvester’s death the
second horse was unofficially known as Mister Ed.
